An important four-game series will come to a close this Thursday (1:05 PM ET) when the Toronto Blue Jays visit the Boston Red Sox. The clubs split the first two games at Fenway Park, with some big offensive outputs from both sides. A total of 32 runs were scored in the first two games of the series, which exemplifies the pitching woes that both the Jays and Red Sox have experienced this season. Thursday night’s matchup is shaping up to be another high-scoring affair, as Triple-A callup Sean Reid-Foley will take the mound for Toronto, while seven-time All-Star Chris Sale will get the ball for Boston.

Normally we wouldn’t be expecting a high-scoring game when Sale gets the ball, but 2019 has been perplexing for the lanky lefty. Sale is on pace for a career-worst ERA (4.27) and has won just three games on the season. In addition, he’s allowed five earned runs in each of his previous three outings.
While the Jays will be looking to take advantage of Sale’s struggles, they’ll likely need a big offensive day just to keep pace with Boston. The Red Sox lead the league in runs scored (537) and they’ll be licking their chops against Reid-Foley, who has pitched more than five innings just once this season.
